3 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 3 DOMESTIC SELECTION F iore D Arancio is the Italian expression for flower of the orange. Orange Muscat is from the family of Muscat grapes. Some studies show that over 200 different kinds of Muscat are grown throughout the world. They re grown for a variety of uses, including wines, raisins, and table grapes. The grapes colors range from white and pink to red and black. Because of the number of varieties and their many differences, some say that Muscat is the oldest varietal used for winemaking, and that most Vitis Vinifera grapes are descendents of the Muscat family. Muscat grapes produce some of the finest dessert wines in the world. A glass of Muscat is best remembered for its sweet floral aroma. In California, Muscat is planted throughout the state. The most planted is Muscat Canelli or White Muscat. The only known vineyard of special Orange Muscat is the Deiner Vineyard near Fresno, California. Winemaker Anthony Riboli sources the grapes for Fiore D Arancio from this vineyard. Anthony is the son of Santo Riboli, president of the famous San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles. The privilege of this exclusive vineyard source is the result of a fifty-year friendship and partnership with the Deiner and Riboli families. Orange Muscat is harvested at 25 Brix. (Degrees Brix is a measurement used to measure the amount of sugars in grapes and wines.) The grapes are fermented in stainless steel. The wine is then fortified with natural grape brandy to stop fermentation and retain the sweetness. The wine is also aged in stainless steel to retain the natural freshness and orange characteristic of the grape. The result is this exquisite wine with a brilliant golden orange color. The aromas assert themselves with vibrant apricot, nectarine, orange peel, and honeysuckle. The wine is full-bodied with healthy acidity and unctuous creamy orange and golden raisin flavors. The finish is lush and lingering. This wine is an ideal accompaniment to a cheese course or an angel food cake. It would also make an exceptional reduction for a savory sauce.

4 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 4 IMPORT SELECTION C ave Extrême is located in Tupungato about 60 miles from Mendoza in one of the best wine regions in Argentina. The area lies at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, a dominant geographic feature that plays an important role in the wine-growing climate. Tupungato is in the Uco Valley where the vineyards rise up the slopes to 3200 feet. These are the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in Mendoza. The extreme temperature differentials from day to night, the dry summers and harsh winters, the altitude, and the slow ripening process make the region coveted for vineyards and wineries. The altitude and climate are especially good for wines with marked acidity, particularly sparkling wines. Cave Extrême was founded in 2002 by a team of professionals who share a passion for excellence and a love of sparkling wine. Their goal is to produce the highest quality Champagnestyle sparkling wine in Mendoza. Cave Extrême s president, Argentinean Jean-Edouard de Rochebouet, has decades of experience internationally in the wine industry. He is also passionate and determined to make the best sparkling wine in Argentina. His long-term and positive relationships with growers guarantee Cave Extrême access to the best Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Chenin Blanc grapes in the Mendoza region. South Extrême Extra Brut is made with hand-harvested Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Chenin Blanc grapes. Fermentation took place with carefully selected French yeasts and low temperatures. After a second fermentation the wines rested on the yeasts for three months for added complexity. The wine was filtered and a sugar mixture added to give its final character. The color is a bright yellow with flashes of green. The medium-sized bubbles rush to the surface and create a soft froth. The aromas of white flowers, tangerines and fresh almonds are clean and pronounced. The palate is medium-dry, fresh with slightly complex fruit and nut flavors leading to a soft and lingering finish. This is wine for toasting and serving with light appetizers such as quiche, seafood canapés and soft cheeses.

5 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 5 LIMITED SERIES S E L E C T I O N C rémant (creh-mahn) is a French term meaning creaming. It was once used for wines that were mildly sparkling, between petillant and mousseux, with 3.5 to 4.0 atmospheres of pressure in the bottle. (Champagne usually has 6.0 atmospheres of pressure.) Not to be confused with Crémant, Cramant is a village in the Champagne region that produces a Crémant de Cramant. In the late 1980s, the European Union outlawed the term Methode Champenoise. Crémant became the French term for sparkling wines made outside Champagne using the champagne method for wine-making. Crémant de Saumur and Crémant de Vouvray were the first to apply the term. Following were Crémant d Alsace, Crémant de Bordeaux, Crémant de Die, Crémant de Limoux, Crémant de Luxembourg and Cremant de Bourgogne. These all refer to the sparkling wines of the region. The grape varieties and terroir may vary from place to place, but there are certain guidelines they all follow. These guidelines govern whole bunch pressing, maximum yields, maximum sulphur dioxide content, minimum nine months on the lees, and rigorous tasting control. Since 1898 Veuve Ambal has been making wines from grapes grown on the slopes around the village of Rully in Burgundy. When founder Marie Ambal became a widow (Veuve means widow in French) she decided to return to her hometown of Rully. She was energetic, six feet tall and wealthy (her husband was a banker). She set up her own firm, Veuve Ambal, and set the standard for sparkling wine in Burgundy. The firm has continued to produce high quality wines, and today it is a certified organic winery run by her greatgreat-grandson Eric. The 2002 Crémant de Bourgogne is light golden in color with small active bubbles leading to a white froth. The aromas show hints of blackcurrant, grapefruit, vanilla, spice, and cherry blossom. The palate is soft with creamy acidity and a hint of mineral. It has a clean lengthy finish. This is wine for your most festive table; try it with honey-baked ham, roast pork tenderloin and mild cheeses Veuve Ambal Crémant de Bourgogne Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Aligote (shar-doe-nay, pee-no nwah, ah-lee-go-tay) Burgundy France Color: Light golden Nose: Blackcurrant, grapefruit, vanilla spice, cherry blossom Palate: Soft, creamy acidity, mineral, clean Finish: Clean, lengthy WOMC Rating 87 Points CELLARING SUGGESTIONS Ageing Potential: 2 to 5 years L1208C Retail Price: $23.95/each Special Member Price: $19.95/each Reorder Price: $16.95/each 29% Discount $203.40/case 5

6 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 6 N orton Winery was founded in Mendoza, Argentina, in 1895 by an English engineer, Edmund J.P. Norton. He planted his first vineyards with vines imported from France. One hundred years later, Austrian businessman Gernot Langes-Swarvoski traveled to Mendoza and was smitten by the land s beauty and potential. He purchased Norton Winery with one goal: to make wines that would show the world the potential of the region. He brought his son aboard and they have since established Norton as one of the country s most important wineries. The Mendoza climate is hot and humid during the summer with cooling influences from the great Andes Mountains. Late Harvest Chardonnay is harvested much later than Chardonnay in other parts of the world, often in early November. This longer hang time allows the fruit to fully ripen and the sugar levels to rise. When the weather cooperates and stays cool and damp, the grapes are LIMITED SERIES S E L E C T I O N perfect for making late harvest wine. The 2008 vintage in Mendoza offered these conditions, and the team at Norton took full advantage of what nature provided. Gernot Langes- Swarvoski is sincere when he said, We recognize ourselves as instruments of nature. Each of our wines reveals that sum total of our climate, our soil, and our creative passion. All these elements live in every bottle of our wine and are finally shown in the pleasure of those who enjoy it. The Norton 2008 Late Harvest Chardonnay wine pours a beautiful gold color with glints of amber. The intense aromas of floral, honey, baked pear, apricot, nutmeg and cinnamon jump out of the glass to meet you. The palate is soft yet lush with apple, soft honey, hazelnut and sweetness balanced with healthy acidity. This light and sweet dessert wine makes for a delightful finish to any meal. Pair it with dry fruit and blue cheese, crème brulee, apple pie or apricot crepes.

13 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 13 ADVENTURES IN GOOD FOOD Stuffed chicken is a traditional holiday meal; made even more special served with South Extreme Brut Sparkling. This is enough stuffing for a 4-5 lb. chicken. CHICKEN STUFFING INGREDIENTS: 2-1/2 cups soft, fine breadcrumbs 1 c. poultry gizzards, finely chopped 1/2 cup butter 1/3 tsp salt 1/3 tsp pepper 1/2 tsp sage 1/2 tsp paprika 1 large onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely minced 1/2 cup mushrooms, finely chopped 1 egg, slightly beaten 1 chicken bouillon cube 1/2 cup water PREPARATION: In medium saucepan, sauté gizzards, onion, garlic, parsley, mushrooms, and seasonings lightly in butter, approximately 2 minutes. Do not brown. Add egg and bouillon to water, mix well, and add to sauce pan. Stir to combine. Cover and steam over the lowest heat for 10 minutes. Stuff the chicken immediately before cooking. If you refrigerate the stuffed bird, the center will not become cold enough to stop bacteria from developing, so do not stuff poultry before refrigerating. If you must have the stuffing ready to go in advance, then you can place it in a separate loaf pan and cover with foil, refrigerate, and cook separately. The holiday season gives us reason to try new things. How about apricot crepes on a Sunday morning with a glass of Norton Late Harvest Chardonnay? It s just as tasty after dinner, too. APRICOT CREPES INGREDIENTS: 1 c. flour 1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/4 c. milk 2 eggs 2 Tbsp. melted oil PREPARATION: Combine flour, salt, and milk in blender at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, beat well, stir in oil. Refrigerate at least an hour or over night. Spray a 6 frying pan with cooking spray. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter for each crepe, making one at a time. Brown on each side. Remove to warming towel. Stack crepes between layers of wax paper. FILLING: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1/4 c. butter, softened 1/4 c. sugar 1 tsp. lemon rind Cream filling ingredients to a soft spreading consistency. SAUCE: 2/3 c. apricot jam 1/3 c. orange juice 2 Tbsp. butter 1 Tbsp. lemon juice 1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind Combine sauce ingredients and heat gently. Spread each crepe with 1 to 2 Tbsp of filling, then fold in quarters and arrange in a circular pattern in a buttered oven-proof dish. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Serve with warmed sauce. 13

MEMBER INQUIRY Making Champagne is a long, intense, methodical, process. Hence, the prices are steep for outstanding Champagnes. As with still wine, the process begins in the vineyard, as the growers select the fruit at optimal ripeness. The grapes are harvested, pressed, and fermented. Most Champagne is skillfully blended at this stage. Next the wine is bottled. A second fermentation takes place in the bottle as the Champagne is aged 18 months to three years. After ageing, the labor-intense riddling and Why are some Champagne and sparkling wines sweeter than others? B.B., MORROW BAY, CA disgorging processes remove the sediments from the bottle. A sugar-wine mixture called a dosage is added just before final corking. This mixture determines how sweet or dry Champagne will be. The label indicates the level of sweetness. Brut wines are bone dry to almost dry with less than 1.5% sugar. Extra Sec or Extra Dry wines are slightly sweeter with % sugar. Sec will give you a medium sweet glass with % sugar. Demi-Sec is sweet with % sugar. Finally, the sweetest Champagnes, Doux, are very sweet with over 5.0% sugar. The last two are considered dessert wines. Be careful when removing the cork. Cheers! 14

17 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 17 DOMESTIC SELECTION C abernet Sauvignon is always ranked as the wine of choice when selecting a red wine with dinner. For many wine drinkers it s the only wine they choose, no matter what the food or the occasion. Fortunately, the grapes are easily cultivated all over the world because both the grapes and the vines are hardy and resilient. There are large plantings in California, France, Chile, Australia, Argentina, Italy, and even Eastern Europe. The best examples of cabernet wines are wellstructured, complex, and full-bodied with mouth puckering tannins and dark licorice and cassis fruit flavors. Besides Barolo from a great year, these are the longest-lived of all wines. These are the grapes with the classic taste that make Bordeaux a Bordeaux. California is also known for Cabernet Sauvignon, and Lodi is considered an emerging jewel of California wine regions. The Lodi wine country is nestled between the San Francisco Bay area and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The climate is classic Mediterranean with warm days and cool, pleasant evenings. Winemaker Phillip Zorn is an internationally respected winemaker with many years of experience. He was born in the United States but raised in Germany. After graduating from Germany s top enology school, he began working for one of Germany s top wineries. In 1984, he returned to the US and has made wine at some top-notch wineries including Sunny St. Helena, Gauer Estates, Paraiso Springs, and Tria. His Stone Briar Cabernet Sauvignon is full of flavor yet soft and supple. It pours a deep ruby red color. Black fruit, blueberries, red licorice, and cola greet you at the nose. The wine is dry, full-bodied with bold flavors of red fruits, and it carries moderate tannins to a fairly long finish.

18 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 18 DOMESTIC SELECTION M onterey, California, has a longestablished reputation for growing awesome Chardonnay. Monterey County has more than 16,000 acres of beautiful vineyards planted with Chardonnay vines. This is more than any other California county. The cool air of Monterey is most often cited as the reason why the grapes ripen perfectly year after year. The cool air comes off Monterey Bay in the north. In addition to the cool growing season, Monterey has moderate winters. Early bud break and a long cool growing season are factors that are very agreeable to growing quality Chardonnay grapes. Most winemakers agree with winemaker Annette Hoff who says, I can t say I ve seen anything as consistent as Monterey Chardonnay, Another winemaker, David Coventry, says, It is climate first. Dean De Lorth, a winemaker from Burgundy says, There s a real similarity to Burgundy. The Monterey AVA, (American Viticultural Area) is more than 90 miles long; hence there are variations in growing conditions. Still, the consistency with all the wines from under $15 to the most expensive selections is notable. You don t need to dress these wines up with heavy oak and full malolactic fermentation; they are really nice without them. Chardonnay is planted throughout the world and is the number-one-selling white grape varietal with good reason. It is delicious and easy on the palate, works with many different foods, and has prices to fit every wine lover s budget. Granada Creek Chardonnay is a bright yellow straw color. It graces the nose with aromas of toast & spice, floral, peaches, baked apples and vanilla. The palate is perfectly balanced with fruit-driven flavors of peach and apple with healthy acidity and soft oak. The clean and refreshing finish makes it a great match with shellfish, vegetarian meals, pasta with white sauce, and roast pork Granada Creek Chardonnay (shar-doe-nay) Monterey California Color: Bright yellow straw Nose: Floral, peaches, baked apple, vanilla Palate: Dry, mediumbodied, fruit driven, crisp acidity Finish: Clean refreshing finish WOMC Rating 86 Points CELLARING SUGGESTIONS Drink now through D Retail Price: $11.99/each Special Member Price: $9.99/each Reorder Price: $6.99/each 41% Discount $83.88/case

19 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 19 H igh Valley is a relatively new American Viticultural Area in the eastern part of Lake County, California. The valley is situated on high elevations ranging from 1700 to 3000 feet. Cool marine breezes gently blow across the vineyards, making it the coolest valley in Lake County. The Vineyards along the ridges of the Round Mountains are warmer and provide near perfect conditions for Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Within this region are some of the oldest vines in California; there are 15 Zinfandel vines planted by the Ogulin family in The area was founded by the Ogulin family who immigrated from Slovenia in the 1850s. Harold Ogulin is the family s third generation, and he still tends the vineyards on the ridge. The grapes for Two Angels Syrah come from the famed Shannon Ridge Vineyards. The soil is volcanic, red pumice stone. The vineyards hug the mountains along the east end at 2200 feet the highest vineyards in California. The vineyard bears a strong resemblance to the Rhone Valley's Crozes- Hermitage vineyards. Two LIMITED SERIES S E L E C T I O N Angels is committed to the land it shares with the mountain s creatures, including bears, elk, mountain lions, and eagles. All the vineyards were designed to leave walkways for migrating animals and to protect nesting areas. Of the 1000 acres on the ranch, only 60 to 70% is cultivated. The balance is preserved for wildlife. The art for Two Angels wine was drawn in 1591 by Jacob Backer. It symbolizes the hilarity of inebriation and the trauma of the morning after. Excessive joy must be countered by equally excessive sorrow, with penitent atonement for pleasure. Two Angels Syrah has captured awards at international wine competitions and has received rave reviews by wine experts. After ten months in French oak, the wine shows a deep purple violet color. The aromas abound with ripe raspberry, huckleberry, plum and licorice. The palate is supple with toasty oak, black cherry preserves, and healthy fruit and oak tannins. This wine is delicious now but will cellar nicely for 3 to 4 years Two Angels Syrah (seer-ah) High Valley California Color: Deep purple violet Nose: Ripe raspberry, plum, licorice Palate: Supple, toasty oak, black cherry preserves Finish: Round and lingering WOMC Rating 86 Points CELLARING SUGGESTIONS Drink now slightly chilled, through 2009 L1208E Retail Price: $29.95/each Special Member Price: $19.95/each Reorder Price: $16.95/each 43% Discount $203.40/case

20 WOMC-News /17/08 11:19 AM Page 20 E ntre-deux-mers is located across from the Graves, on the right bank situated between the Garonne and the Dordogne Rivers. Hence, the name, Entre-Deux-Mers, which translated means between two seas. They are not exactly seas, but large and mighty rivers controlled by the Atlantic tides. This is a vast growing region covered with exceptional soils with sand, clay, limestone and gravel. The region is especially known for its superb quality white wines. About 15 million bottles are produced per year, and these are mostly white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle grapes. The uncontested queen is Sauvignon Blanc. Chateau Bonnet lies to the north of Entre-Deux-Mers on clay-chalk soil in the commune of Grezillac. The estate dates back to the 17th century and has changed hands several times. Most recently, Vintner Leonce Recapet bought the estate to realize a life-long dream to make wine. He successfully ran the estate in spite of mildew, oidium, and LIMITED SERIES S E L E C T I O N Phylloxera. Because of his determination, the estate became one of the finest in the region. In 1956, his grandson Andre Lurton inherited the estate and since followed in his grandfather s footsteps of making excellent wines. Denis Galabert is the enologist at Chateau Bonnet. He is well-known and respected throughout France. The grapes were hand-sorted and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. There the wine rested for four months on the lees for added complexity. The blend is 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle. It pours a beautiful green color with glints of gold. The nose shows floral, citrus, pineapple, and grapefruit aromas. The palate is dry and crisp with lively acidity and complex pear, citrus and mineral. The finish is clean and lingering. Chateau Bonnet is best drunk young and chilled as a delicious aperitif, or with oysters, shellfish, cold cuts, and light meats Andre Lurton Chateau Bonnet Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon/ Muscadelle (saw-veen-yawn blahn/sheme-ahn/moo-skah-del) Entre-Deux-Mers France Color: Green with gold hints Nose: Floral, citrus, pineapple, grapefruit Palate: Dry, crisp, lively, complex pear, citrus, mineral Finish: Clean lingering finish WOMC Rating 87 Points CELLARING SUGGESTIONS Drink now through 2009 L1208F Retail Price: $21.95/each Special Member Price: $19.95/each Reorder Price: $17.95/each 18% Discount $215.40/case
